Sorry for the delay but it's finally launched. Due to the delay I'm giving all of the 2016 Patrons an extra week and a half to receive the discount. For 2016 Patrons, the discount will be applied at checkout.

Thank you for your support.

Got an error message dj, but think I have paid. Sent you an e-mail. Let me know if I need to try to pay again.

BTW - you may want to look at your opening post which contains some confusion between 2016 and 2017.

Thanks everybody. Since there a ton of these coming in. I'm going to assign all the badges once per day. The time of day will vary but will either be the first or last thing I do daily.  grin

So since I do not have a badge I guess you did not get my payment?

Cheers!

Welcome to the forums dajokr. Always cool to have new members. smiley

Thanks!  Glad to be here.  I got back into the game about a year ago.  Bought all the current games, found a classic MB on eBay, and even picked up a few of the nice addons from HBG/IWNGU like IPC chips and dice.  I was only able to play one game of global (tripping all over the rules the whole time) but it was a blast!  I think I must have spend days watching Young Grasshopper's videos on YouTube.

Took a life break to move to Japan (I'm a US Naval officer) and am starting to pick it back up again.  Just bought a whole bunch of custom battle pieces from HBG and I'm looking for some playing partners.  Also tracked down a VG copy of AA50 on eBay for a not-too-outrageous price, so I aim to get into that one too.

I've actually been playing 1941 solo the past few weeks, trying out different strategies and working my way back through the rules.  I will soon move on to 1942SE and AA50.  

All of the people on this board are extremely helpful, even with the questions that could have been answered by 17 seconds of reading the rule book. Wink

I have also enjoyed all of the customizations here.  In particular, I have really appreciated the work of Young Grasshopper and Siredblood.  

Looking forward to seeing everyone around.

That is awesome. Thank you for your service. There is a lot of talented people on this website. I learned to paint my pieces, because of the help from members, on this forum, so don't hesitate to ask questions.

I'm also a piece junkie and have almost everything HBG has to offer. I've filled, 15 of the plano fishing tackle boxes, full of pieces, and I've found all the axis and allies games through ebay, so I know what your talking about, lol. grin

Well it seems my first attempt to buy a gold badge has failed as that badge is not showing on my posts.

I am feeling discouraged by dj's failure to answer any of my attempts to clarify whether that is the fact, either in this thread, or by PM or by e-mail. When I get my bank statements I will double check and then decide whether to try again.

I enjoy this forum, so I might offer a lower level of support regardless.

My apologies for a not very positive post amongst all the demonstrations of support, but by being open with this I might just encourage an improvement.
